Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes Finale

It’s the last episode of Shiki and to celebrate with making this the most thorough and long review of Shiki possible I’ll start talking about the dub. It sucks what a surprise. There are a lot of side characters in this show and I’d understand if they were bad however the appearances from main characters … Continue reading Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes Finale

Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes

The title of “Shiki specials” can be deceiving on my anime list because these episodes are just ones that didn’t air, ones that were forgotten, kind of. Before discussing the episode (20.5) I’ll have to give a spoiler warning because this episode actually destroys one of the most ambiguous parts of the show so if … Continue reading Shiki – The Forgotten Episodes

Shiki – The Final Hunt [22]

The Final Hunt 25/10/17 3:48 PM The sun sets on Sotoba village and I felt an immense worry for what would happen, since the vampires are now safer. This happens as soon as Seishin runs away so Sunako immediately gets up and starts looking around, which was sad in my opinion. I thought it would … Continue reading Shiki – The Final Hunt [22]

Shiki – Mourning [20]

Twenteith Mourning – 25/10/17 1:14 PM At the start of the episode I found myself thinking that at the shows current pace the show would need to do a whole lot of murdering to resolve the plot. And it certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact the episode starts with a vampire’s eyes exploding due to exposure … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning [20]

Shiki – Coffin [19]

Nineteenth Coffin - 23/10/17 6:51 PM The episode opens where we left off at Chizuru’s death. Toshio uses this moment to rally the villagers and cause them to go on a hunt for the vampires. I see people rooting for the Shiki or calling the humans equaly bad but this is obviously incorrect. The vampires … Continue reading Shiki – Coffin [19]

Shiki – Killing Spirit [17]

Seventeenth Killing Spirit - 23/10/17 11:37 AM This episode didn’t reveal the plan I wanted to see, I sure do hope the plan involved Toshio getting bitten and becoming subservient to the vampires though, because it happened. At the start of the episode Toshio said the plan was to wait until it looked like the … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit [17]

Shiki – Skull [16]

Sixteenth Skull - 23/10/17 10:04 AM This episode was great, not only because my pre-determined wants happened but because they happened in interesting ways which are promising for the future and side character involved heavily involved with the plot yet not given much attention. Sunako, the child vampire, was one of these people in particular … Continue reading Shiki – Skull [16]

Shiki – Death [14]

Fourteenth Death – 22/10/17 8:31 PM Last episode really was a tragedy and this episode needed to accomplish a lot to fix it. I wanted more characters I knew in situations I could enjoy, a faster paced story with more advancement of the plot and just things that were actually interesting, that last one is … Continue reading Shiki – Death [14]

Shiki – Tragedy [13]

Thirteenth Tragedy – 22/10/17 7:32 PM This episode was the worst episode so far and probably the only episode of Shiki I would rate a score of 5 or less. Essentially everything which happened was something we either knew already or didn’t care about, and it’s because of the emotional value the show tried to … Continue reading Shiki – Tragedy [13]

Shiki – Slaughter [11]

Eleventh Slaughter - 21/10/17 8:30 PM Most episodes of Shiki are enjoyable to watch and just think about even if they only really focussed on one thing in particular. What made this episode so interesting was the fact that they seemingly introduced one character, explained what her purpose and ideas were, have the rest of … Continue reading Shiki – Slaughter [11]

Shiki – Mourning [10]

Tenth Mourning – 19/10/17 8:18 PM There was something about this episode which made the vampires feel a whole lot less villainous than they used to be and that’s done through showing us the story from their perspective, they’re really evil but I’ve ended up liking some of the vampires, which is something that I … Continue reading Shiki – Mourning [10]

Shiki – Night [8]

Eighth Night – 19/10/17 5:39 PM After the previous thrilling episode where everything started coming together to form a narrative more focussed on the threats instead of reactions to deaths I wanted this momentum to continue into the next episode and well, this sort of happened. Whilst the characters made progressions to come to the … Continue reading Shiki – Night [8]

Shiki – Killing Spirit [7]

Seventh Killing Spirit – 18/10/17 8:17 This show is getting a whole lot better and I really love the direction the series is headed. It’s not going to be scary but it’s going to be really interesting and entertaining anyway. Doing the three episode rule showed me that the series would be something I’d like … Continue reading Shiki – Killing Spirit [7]

Shiki – Skull [6]

Sixth Skull – 18/10/17 7:19 PM Wow I really loved this episode because everything I’ve been saying and re-iterating finally seems to be happening. Let’s talk about why this episode was really exciting to watch! We opened with a shot of Megumi retrieving her ripped post card from Yuuki and it’s sad because it seems … Continue reading Shiki – Skull [6]

Shiki – Deceit [5]

Fifth Deceit – 18/10/17 4:54 PM After scheduling the previous five posts earlier today I noticed that I’d made a few mistakes whilst watching the previous episodes. The first mistake was the conditions I was watching the show in, either broad daylight or with the lights on too much. It’s not as spooky this way, … Continue reading Shiki – Deceit [5]

Shiki – Third Tragedy [3]

Third Tragedy – 8:22 AM 18/10/17 I stayed very calm and normal throughout this episode, this show seems pretty calm really with all the deaths only being seemingly natural. Before watching I wanted to see new plot points occur which shed light on the mystery, the issue was from the previous episode was that the … Continue reading Shiki – Third Tragedy [3]
